If you’re looking to expand your movie collection this month, you’re in luck, because a bunch of great stuff is being released all at once, including a number of Academy Award winners and nominees.

Here are our top 5 picks for what you should be adding to your movie shelf in March.

interstellar-blu-ray1. Interstellar

Release Date: March 31

Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine star in Christopher Nolan’s latest epic. The film follows a team of astronauts who must travel beyond our galaxy in search of a way to save humanity from extinction.

imitation-game-blu-ray4. The Imitation Game

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in this drama about Alan Turing, a real-life British cryptanalyst who helped solve the “uncrackable” Enigma code during WWII.

The film picked up eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, and a Best Actor for Cumberbatch. It also won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

song of the sea blu ray5. Song of the Sea

Release Date: March 17

Song of the Sea was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature this year, which surprised a lot of people considering The LEGO Movie didn’t make the cut. It shouldn’t have been that big of a shock though, as the studio’s previous movie, The Secret of Kells, was also a surprise Oscar nominee in 2009.

The film is based on an ancient Celtic myth of the selkie, creatures who live as humans on land, and as seals underwater. This animation team is known for their stunning visual style, and Song of the Sea doesn’t disappoint. Pick this one up if you’re a big fan of animation, or you’re looking for something fresh to watch with your family.
